The rescue of the Chilean miners trapped 600 feet below the earth for almost 70 days was really dramatic and moving.
It got me thinking, what the situation might have been had these miners been Pakistanis…..
Rehman Malik would have announced within the first few moments of the incident that all the miners were dead, only to retract his statement later.
Zardari would go off to France to wine and dine at his chateau.
The Prime Minster would have come out with the statement that if such an accident had really taken place, he was not aware of it.
Nawaz Sharif would first join hands with the PPP in saving the lives of the miners and then turn against his “bhai” alleging that this was a plot to gain votes.
Imran Khan would be blaming the Americans for the collapse of the mine.
Altaf Hussain would want the government to hand over the rescue operation to the army.
Ejaz Butt would be trying to figure out who would lead the rescue team.
Hamid Mir would have uncovered corruption and mismanagement of funds allocated to the rescue plan and traced the amount to Zardari’s account in some Swiss Bank.
Iftkhar Chaudhry would launch an investigation to find out if any of the miners had benefited from the NRO.
The police would try to stop the miners lawyers from reaching the site, resulting in a clash and “upholders of the law” would beat the crap out of each other.
And while the rescue shuttle, which is probably a rusted barrel tied with a worn out rope being pulled (remember it’s load shedding time) by an old undernourished overworked donkey, is lowered into the ground, an American drone bombs the place, killing not only the miners but their families as well. Mission accomplished. Militants who were trying to dig their way into Europe before swimming to the USA killed!!!
Rehman Malik : “The miners were already dead before the drone bombing.”
